I'm taking good care of my body and exercise regularly. For relaxation I like to read mysteries, science and technology, and assorted current books.
My perfect first date is sharing a good meal and a very long conversation together. My ideal match is an intelligent, well educated woman with a good sense of humor. She works in some professional capacity and enjoys her chosen profession. She works hard but also likes to play hard - or relax with a good book, soft music, a crackling fire, and a glass of wine. She is trim and fit and exercises regularly and possesses a sensual nature. She can thoroughly enjoy a soak in a hot tub, a massage, or just lounging around and watching a movie or listening to music. She enjoys good food and likes to cook for herself or with her friends. She may be more of a homebody, preferring cocooning to sailing the seven seas (unless it's on a cruise ship!). If she has children they are not living with her, thereby giving her the time and freedom to explore whatever paths her life now takes. She is a spiritual, but not religious person; she isn't bound to any arbitrary sectarian dogma but instead chooses to think for herself. She is a warm, kind, and generous person with a caring attitude and enthusiastic spirit.
I am divorced and have two children. My married daughter (age 30) writes and illustrates children's books in New York City and my son (age 24) just finished graduate school
I'm originally from Montreal, having arrived in San Francisco when I was five. I still speak reasonable French but I need practice.
Finally, I retired from the computer industry, after spending over 25 years in various engineering and management positions. I'm now doing computer system design in aerospace and I love it.
